30 DEC - 23 MAR (departure on Sundays)
650 KM - BEGINNER / INTERMEDIATE
This most popular beginner/intermediate circuit will take you to a multitude of pretty 'outfitters'. Hidden deep in the woods of the Hautes Laurentides and Haute Mauricie regions, these typically Canadian accommodations, run by and for the people of the forest, will charm you for sure. Along the route, on a network of fabulous well-maintained marked trails, you will come across a series of panoramas and viewpoints that will be forever etched in your memory. Mountains and valleys, lakes and forests, streams and rivers will certainly be part of the images you will fill your cameras with. If luck smiles on us, even the photos of certain wild beasts may slip into it.
Beginner / intermediate level, this raid is perfect for a first excursion. Its pace adaptable to your abilities, its short stages on beautiful, wide and safe trails make it an excursion that lends itself very well to participants of all sexes, ages and levels of physical ability.
Looking forward to welcoming you with us this winter for a memorable excursion!
